Toby Walne, Financial Post on Sunday

Every week TOBY WALN gives the low-down on the Value of forgotten treasures that can collect dust in your attic

If you look in the attic, you might find a pile of old bags worth hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds.

Louis Vuitton revolutionized the luggage industry when, in 1854, when he was a 16-year-old papermaking apprentice, he began producing canvas cases that could be stacked on top of each other.

Rich travelers could suddenly expand the range of travel bags – from cocktail cases to portable wardrobes.

Find one in your attic and you have a forgotten trunk that could bring 1,500 pounds.

Other unusual vuitton straps include a late 19th century tea box that can go for 500 pounds.

Earlier Vuitton cases in pink can bring up to 3,000 pounds.
